Know your Stress Score and CPSI Score

Post by webslave »

Every CPPS patient needs to know the score!

Take the tests here:


The National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI) covers the three most important domains of chronic prostatitis with nine questions. The first domain, pain, is captured in four questions covering location, severity, and frequency. The second domain, urinary function, is captured in two questions covering irritative storage symptoms and obstructive voiding function. The third domain, quality of life, is captured in three questions covering how the symptoms effect daily activities.

Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale
In 1967, psychiatrists Thomas Holmes and Richard Rahe decided to study whether or not stress contributes to illness. They surveyed more than 5,000 medical patients and asked them to say whether they had experience any of a series of 43 life events in the previous two years. Each event, called a Life Change Unit (LCU), had a different "weight" for stress. The more events the patient added up, the higher the score. The higher the score, and the larger the weight of each event, the more likely the patient was to become ill.
